I have offers from Amazon as a returning intern and google for SWE, but I also have a startup I’ve been working on for a few weeks and really believe it has potential. Is it worth pursuing right now? I could use some advice.
- Amazon PAxv45I think it is better to go to Google since WLB is better, and you can work on your idea on the side. Once you have an MVP, you can quit to pursue your startup. Also Amazon has pretty strict non competitive agreements if you are going to compete later on.
- Uber / EngNellyDiddyGoogle and keep working on the startup on the side. But really depends on what your startup is doing and next steps that you need to accomplish to move the startup forward. There are some things you have to do for a startup that are simply not possible while having a full time SWE job.
I worked on my startup for 4 months while still employed at Uber, then decided to quit and have been full time on the startup for another 3 months. PM me if you wanna chat more
